Work from home

All operations of my university (UTM) are postponed from 18 March 2020 to 31 March 2020. It refers to the Special Announcement made by the Malaysian Prime Minister on the implementation of the Movement Restriction, from 18 March 2020 to 31 March 2020, nationwide. So, I work from home.

Kaca mata

49678996277_f1b2aa429d_b
Kaca mata ini sudah 19 tahun menemaniku
Kubeli di Sapporo, Jepang 
Alhamdullilah tidak pernah lepas
Walaupun catnya sudah mengelupas
Dia membantuku melihat lebih jelas

Tanpa kacamata, penglihatanku terbatas
Walaupun dibantu oleh kaca mata
Penglihatanku kadang-kadang masih kabur
Terutama melihat situasi sekarang
Yang dikaburkan oleh nafsu
Yang dikaburkan oleh fitnah

Yang nampak hebat dan cemerlang
Ternyata tidak demikian 
Tertutup oleh kemunafikan
Tertutup oleh fitnah
Tertutup oleh kebusukan hati

Aku sudah punya kaca mata untuk mataku
Kaca mata hati, itu yang sekarang kuperlukan
Supaya aku dapat melihat hikmah

Alhamdulillahirabbil 'alamin
